Real Estate Going Green

Posted on August 29, 2014

Front PorchWhen it comes to real estate in Pensacola, “going green” is not just a fad. For buyers, it is an investment in the future and for sellers it could be the difference between a home that sells and a home that sits.

According to a National Association of Home Builders study, roughly 90 percent of homebuyers take energy efficiency into account as they shop. When you think about it, the reason is simple: energy efficient homes have the potential to save buyers money on utility costs and offer additional health benefits among a variety of other factors.

From a seller’s standpoint, thinking green in renovations can have its advantages as well. The NAHB study indicates a strong tendency for buyers to take efficiency into account when searching for a home; combine this with the facts that most single family homes in the United States, Pensacola, Perdido Key and Orange Beach included, were built before energy-saving regulations were enacted and you have two very compelling reasons to go green before you list your home.
